Community guidelines

The comments section on this site is a space for you to chat with other members, share your cycling wisdom and experiences, and discuss the blogs you enjoyed the most.

To help keep this community safe, constructive and fun, here are a few things to keep in mind. Thanks for your help & support ❤️.

Respect each other

This should be a nice place for everyone, so please be kind and respectful. Other peoples' beliefs, views and experiences may differ from yours.

Share your real name and expertise

When you publish your first comment on this site, you'll be prompted to complete a member profile, with your name and expertise. Please use your real name if you're comfortable sharing. For "expertise" (a default label we can't change) you might want to put in your preferred type of riding and degree of cycling addiction. You can update this any time.

Stay on topic

A new blog or list might prompt a dozen different types of responses, from someone sharing a personal story to a newcomer asking for clarification. In every instance, do your best to stay on topic, only share links to your own content when it directly adds to the conversation. And please don't spam.

If you've contributed to the conversation and someone else replies to your thread, you'll be notified by email. You can choose to switch these emails off in your member account settings, under email preferences.

Flag inappropriate interactions

As a member, you can help maintain a welcoming and positive community by reporting any behaviour that goes against these guidelines.

If you see someone being rude, negative, hateful, divisive, or combative in the comments section, flag it. All you need to do is click the three dots next to the inappropriate comment, and then click Report comment. These reports are taken seriously. We have a zero tolerance policy for abusive behaviour.

That’s it! If you’ve scrolled this far, thank you for being a valued member, and see you in the comments!

Thanks very much,
Steve & Andy
